"There is No Place Like Home"
Before we get to the good stuff .........
Give a high five and applause to Karen, Sara and Hayley for the following pictures and information, without these ladies - there would be no site update this month. Thank you all for pitching in and making it possible! I had a blast with my grandkids - thank you all.
Home is a wonderful place and SHOPPING at home is the bestest ever as at our August meeting with Karalee Austin from Minneapolis and "No Place Like Home" quilt shop.
From everything I've heard, she had lots of interesting items in her "shop" on Monday night.
And her presentation on upcoming events, patterns and classes was great.
This stack and whack looks amazing and there are classes coming up. Click here to go to the web site and see what is available and check out their on-line shopping.
Love the examples for everyone to get ideas for future projects.
Isn't that stool cute and cool.
Stack and whack out of barn fabric? Wow!
And look at the quilt shown here.
Heard a lot of good things from the night.
Show 'n Tell
Esther's group in Morganville had made blocks for each other about 10 years ago and Esther brought her finished quilt in for us to see. Love the middle - that was Esther's pattern/design.
Ginny made a quilt for her new great grandchild.
Frances B. made this quilt as a wedding present
Leave it to Frances to make the back as pretty as the front.
Deborah B. brought in her finished applique bag project from the Sat. sew. Look at all those cute additions she put on it.
Teresa also brought in her finished bag and
her portrait from Lola's class. Great job on both.
Okay, I am glad to see that Virginia doesn't hold still long enough for others on the camera too - it is not just me. Don't fret, they got another shot of her bag later.
Lisa brought in her twilling and piecing quilt. Remember, click on the pictures and they come in larger so that you can see all the work our people are doing.
Think Jeanette K. is behind this UFO - Plain and Fancy Quilt
She finished her bag
and her twilling project. Congrats Jeanette on not only finishing but in doing some great work.
Deb M. has made some iron bags - wonderful as they un-do and second as an ironing pad also.
Finished her Lola project. Love the dark green around the edges, makes the bright green in the face really stand out.
Tote bag from Deb M.
Deb's quilt for a cancer patient
and her rose quilt. Sscchhh! You tire me out Deb with all your finished projects. I'm jealous - but Great Job!
Juanita brought in her bag from the applique class and
her quilt for a benefit auction in November. All the fabrics are left over fabrics from the civil war/generals wife quilt (if I understood correctly) - so waste not want not. You go Juanita.
Boy I wished I could have seen this quilt up close. Karen U. used the BOM pattern for twilling and hand quilted it all. Now forgive me - is this the front or the back?
Or is this the back or front? Karen must quilt as she sleeps to get this done already.
Yeah! President Karen for all the inspiration.
On display for the twilling BOM blocks were Carol S.
and Ginny B.'s. Remember Ginny is also hand quilting but as a quilt as you go type. Looking forward to seeing how she puts hers together.
Here is the promised shot of Virginia sitting still with her applique bag along with Deb O.'s finished bag. These ladies now have a wonderful piece of their own applique work to carry their rotary cutters, scissors or what ever in.
All of you did a great job this past month in finishing up tasks. Always look forward to what others are doing - gee, maybe I should get to work.
Be safe - School starts this week.
